Tuesday Night Youth

This league is dedicated to elementary aged children from 5 to 12 years of age. We offer 3 different stages of learning on our youth league.

For the younger children we have "Bumper Bowling" where they first learn to release the ball and gradually learn how walk up to the line to release the ball. The gutter bumpers are always up until they get the hang of it.

When they learn to take their steps and release the ball they'll move on. When children graduate from "Bumper Bowling" they are placed in "Beginner" bowling. This is where they continue to practice taking steps and properly releasing the ball.

Both Bumper and Beginner bowling have coaches that work with the children at all times to ensure they are learning the proper techniques. Our final stage is placing the children on teams. Our team format is 3 children per team.

They make up their own team name and compete for points weekly. This league has two, 12 week seasons with an awards banquet at the end of each. They start at 5:15pm every Tuesday evening and go from September thru April. New members can join any time.

Junior High and High School League

These league are dedicated to junior high and high school aged young adults. Both offer some light coaching if needed.

The format is three per team and they compete for points. These leagues start at 3pm every Tuesday and go from September thru April.

Teen leagues are a great way for young adults to meet up with eachother for safe, fun and friendly competition. New members can join any time.
